Twenty-seven of the world’s best-known political cartoonists will join their local counterparts for the first International Cartoonists Convention to be held at Mishkenot Sha’ananim in Jerusalem from November 6 8. These include the Pulitzer Prize winning American contingent of Pat Oliphant, Jeff Danziger and Ann Telnaes whose bitingly funny offerings appear in The New York Times, Washington Post and International Herald Tribune, Jean Plantu from France whose 32 year career with Le Monde and L’Express has made him a household institution, Mikhail Zlatkovsky from Russia who started life as a nuclear physicist, turned to social satire and in 1992 was voted top cartoonist in the world by his peers, and Tanzanian-born Gado from Kenya whose cartoons are syndicated in dozens of papers through out the world as well as in the Kenyan Daily Nation. The local contingent includes Baha Boukhari from Ramallah who is almost as famous for the number of cartoons censored as for those published in El Ayam, Amos Biederman and Daniella London-Dekel whose work is seen in Ha’aretz and cartoon veteran Moshik Lin.
